Anne Holton, the wife of Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine, was in Palm Beach County on Tuesday for a campaign stop for her husband and Hillary Clinton.

The event took place at the Florida Atlantic University Student Union in Boca Raton.

The visit offered the former secretary of education of Virginia the chance to take questions from an important group of voters -- millennials.

“We need to figure out how to help the candidates reach their generation. Their generation communicates differently," said Holton.

She is the mother of three millennials and believes the generation gets a bad rap.

“They are not self-absorbed, they are very much about service," said Holton.

Holton said her children and her visit to FAU taught her that young Americans are concerned about important issues.

“Climate science, they care about immigration reform, they care about LGBT issues, they care about women's reproductive rights," said Holton.

She also addressed Hillary Clinton's health scare Sunday after she nearly fainted during a 9/11 ceremony in New York.

“She's got a bug. She's going to get over and be back on the campaign trail. She's going to fine," said Holton.

If Clinton wins in November, Holton said her job will be to focus on education.

“(I’ll be) listening to our teachers, our parents about what's working in the world of education and what's not and how the federal government can be a better partner to our state and local educators," said Holton.

Holton also held two campaign events in Fort Myers on Monday.
